Blue surreal trees in Seattle
Two projects in Seattle one at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle and the other located along the Burke Gilman Trail will feature blue smurf colored trees.
The trees are painted with biologically safe pigmented water color by Australian artist Konstantin Dimopolous. The blue vibrant blue trees are painted to help draw attention deforestation issues around the world.
The trees, once painted will slowly fade and will lose most of their by summer, until then, the blue trees are turning heads.
The art project is sponsored by Seattle’s 4 Culture organizations which hopes will inspire discussion around the deforestation issues.
However, one man plans on helping several trees turn heads.
About 32 million acres of forests were converted to other uses or lost to natural causes each year between 2000 and 2010, according to a 2010 report by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
